Neshoba Baptist Church Records

Sister Mrs. Ben Rhodes

Whereas on Sep 6, 1945, it pleased our Heavenly Father to call the spirit of Mrs. Ben RHODES from this world, her family and loved ones, Mrs. RHODES joined the church early in life and remained a regular and consistent member until bad health kept her on the bed of affliction for several years. Her cheerful smile and kindness presented a charm to all who knew her. We appreciate her many Sterling qualities as a wife, mother, and friend. In her unselfish manner she was always ready and willing to help others. Therefore, we desire to renew our sympathy to her family and loved ones in their hours of sorrow and pray God's richest Blessing upon them. Be it resolved by the Neshoba Baptist Church that a copy of these resolutions be placed upon the church minutes, a copy sent to Baptist Record and sent to the family.

Ollie Malinda's marriage date is listed as 5/12/1872 in Henry Co. I found this in an index of Henry Co. GA marriages 1850-1900 in the Marietta Library. Ollie appears 2 additional times in my file. I just learned of an Ollie Davies who is also a 'cousin' to the Rossers. My grandmother was Daniel's youngest child and I am next to the youngest grandchild. She told the story of Daniel's sister getting into trouble and going out west. Several of my grandmothers nieces and nephews hinted that she was pregnant. This would fit with James being born and then they were married. Nothing was ever known of her again. I found her on the 1870 Henry Co., GA census with her father Jimmie and step mother Mary and brother Daniel and 2 step- brothers. 2 of the boys married Tolleson cousins-- Sarah Frances and Edna Frances. Jimmie died in 1875 and Mary in 1912. (Mika Chatham)
